Biological or Clinical Significance:

C-X-C motif chemokine 5 (CXCL5 or ENA78) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CXCL5 gene. CXCL5 plays a role in reducing sensitivity to sunburn pain in some subjects, and is a “potential target which can be utilized to understand more about pain in other inflammatory conditions like arthritis and cystitis.” CXCL5 is well known to have chemotactic and activating functions on neutrophil, mainly during acute inflammatory responses. However CXCL5 expression is also higher in atherosclerosis (a chronic inflammatory condition) but is not associated with neutrophil infiltration. Instead CXCL5 has a protective role in atherosclerosis by directly controlling macrophage foam cell formation.
